Plant sensors

I got an Easy Bloom Plant sensor several years ago,  I have used it sporadically - just for light and temperature readings - not concerned with moisture or humidity.  As I am away all day it was helpful in recording what goes on...
It was helpful in finding which windows in my house had the best light - combined with supplemental lighting - at different times of year.
I used it to check my greenhouse ventilation and shading over several days.
It confirmed that some areas of the yard did not get enough full sun (though just observing plants will usually suffice).

It was not expensive and seems durable. The raw information is most useful, the website will also analyze your data and make (very limited) plant suggestions.
